Title: Rehabilitation and physical activity for COVID-19 patients in the post infection period
Author: D. Liska, M. Andreansky

Abstract: The first cases of COVID-19 were initially recorded in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei Province. The situation quickly escalated and turned into a global pandemic. COVID-19 is a highly infectious respiratory disease that leads to decreased respiratory, physical, and psychological function of affected patients (2). Patients’ symptoms widely vary; from asymptomatic course to severe symptoms. Decrease in physical function, and, in some cases, a persistence of symptoms may be observed in patients, who overcame the infection period. Rehabilitation represents a potential treatment option for COVID-19 patients in post-infection period. Rehabilitation therapies may help to restore physical function in patients and to reduce the long-term effects of COVID19 infection (Ref. 37). Text in PDF www.elis.sk
